Digital Local Land Charges Register continues to grow as Welwyn Hatfield joins

first_imgDigital Local Land Charges Register continues to grow as Welwyn Hatfield joins From today (Wednesday 26 May), anyone requiring local land charges (LLC) searches in the local authority area of Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council will need to get them from HM Land Registry rather than going directly to the council.Councillor Nick Pace, Executive Member for Governance and Public Health at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, said:We’re really pleased to have partnered with HM Land Registry to migrate our LLC data onto its central, digital register. It will help make the property buying and selling process quicker and easier, greatly benefiting residents and businesses in Welwyn Hatfield.Mark Kelso, Programme Director for HM Land Registry’s Local Land Charges Programme, said:Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council is the latest local authority to offer its customers access to HM Land Registry’s LLC Register. I am delighted that people buying property in Welwyn Hatfield will now have access to instant local land charges search results, making it quicker and simpler to buy and sell property in the area.Local land charges searches are normally required in the property-buying process. Most local land charges are restrictions or prohibitions on the use of the property such as planning permissions or listed buildings. The local land charges search will reveal whether a property is subject to a charge which then informs a buyer’s decision to buy a property or parcel of land.HM Land Registry is working in partnership with local authorities to migrate their local land charges data to a central, digital register as part of a phased approach. Once migrated, anyone will be able to get instant online search results via GOV.UK using the Search for Local Land Charges service.HM Land Registry’s business customers can use their existing portal and Business Gateway channels or their usual search providers to access local land charges data for those local authorities which have migrated.Customers will need to continue to submit CON29 enquiries to the local authority.For an overview of the service, watchF /Public Release.

That means it will likely have a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder with variable compression, producing 268 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine will probably be connected to a CVT, and send power to the front wheels, with all-wheel-drive available as an option.The QX55 will compete with the German big boys like the BMW X4 Coupe and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.

Watch ‘Unlocking COVID-19 through Open Access’ with Morteza Karimzadeh

first_img Morteza Karimzadeh: “Alright, hello! my name is Morteza Karimzadeh, I’m an assistant professor of geography here at CU Boulder. We do a lot of research using open geospatial data [and] I’ll show you an example of research on the mitigation policies implemented during COVID-19 with increased social distancing. “So the big research question we’re asking is that “Are localities in the U.S. mitigating local outbreaks with (temporary) increased social distancing?” Specifically, we are looking at the counties in the U.S. and for that we need a lot of data, all of it for free and openly. The case rates for COVID-19, we can get that from public health departments across the country. Then we also need mobility data, aggregated cell phone data that shows how many people in this or that county moved or increased or decreased their movement. “We also need to look at some controlling variables, including unemployment and median household income. Well, if people are not going out as much, is it because they’re unemployed or is it because they tend to occupy jobs that allow them to work from home. We get this data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau on the American Community Survey. “As an example, we’re looking at social distancing in May of 2020, we see the Pacific Northwest, the Bay Area, the eastern Tri-states staying at home more rigorously than, let’s say, some of the Midwestern counties. But is that a function of unemployment or unemployment or local infection rates? For that, we actually divided our data into the regional pacts and alliances that were formed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We can see the eastern pact states stayed at home, way more compared to, let’s say, the Midwestern pacts or the unaffiliated states. But the Sunbelt pact states that were also not affiliated did not go out as much as the Midwestern pacts. However, how did that compare to local infection rates? Well, if we actually plot our data, the movement data as a function of local infection rates, we see that there is a huge increase in social distancing in the Eastern pact states compared to, let’s say, the Sunbelt states even though they, in fact, did not stay at home. It was not as much as it would be as a response to local COVID-19 infection rates. As a result, we saw a huge outbreak in the months of July and August in the Sunbelt states. “So this is just an example of how we use open data in our research. It helps us with responsive research. We and a bunch of other researchers were able to get our hands on this data really fast and help influence policy to mitigate the pandemic. It’s also replicable–other researchers can confirm the veracity of our findings. It helps us foster collaboration without having to worry about data share agreements and institutional boundaries, the data is open and out there for free. That really also helps us be teaching. We’ve been using these data sets in our teaching for predictive modeling of COVID-19 in class and students really enjoy working with up-to-date data that is readily available. “That was my presentation today. I hope students if they occupy jobs in the future, they can advocate for making the data available openly to the public. Good luck!” Published: Oct. 16, 2020 Unlocking COVID-19 through Open Access is a video series produced by the University Libraries and the Center for Research Data & Digital Scholarship that highlights CU Boulder faculty and researchers using the open access publishing model to make their work on COVID-19 more accessible to the public. Morteza Karimzadeh, an assistant professor of geography at CU Boulder, is using open geospatial data and demographic data to learn more about mitigation and mobility in the United States during the pandemic.

Dr Randeep Guleria, Director, AIIMS and Chairman, CII Public Health Council would also speak at the inaugural session.The global impact of COVID-19 has overwhelmed large sections of the world’s healthcare infrastructure, and the ongoing threat it presents has been the most demanding on our public health systems. The present scenario is of grave concern to stakeholders in the country as it has caused disruptions to supply chains to every segment of the economy. It is of fundamental concern to strategise the restoration of the nation’s healthcare infrastructure,  and research & development facilities.The Indian healthcare scenario presents a spectrum of contrasting landscapes. The urban-rural gap in healthcare infrastructure seems to be ever growing, presenting us with an even more complex present. Although the pandemic has helped improve India’s healthcare infrastructure as both the government and private players have had to incur vast amounts of unplanned expenditure, the overall ecosystem still faces a multiplicity of challenges.There are several key areas that need to be addressed regarding the healthcare ecosystem. There have been strides taken to address the idea of affordable and quality healthcare through various flagship programmes such as Ayushman Bharat, however, areas such as accessibility, absence of human power, accountability and the lack of awareness among the general population continues to hinder the progress of the overall ecosystem.The tailwinds and opportunities presented to the Indian healthcare sector due to the COVID-19 pandemic are innumerable, and CII’s India Healthcare Week aims to redefine the Indian healthcare ecosystem.With 30+ knowledge sessions on a wide range of issues, ranging from making India an attractive destination for med tech and charting its route towards Atmamirbhar, to the growing role of AYUSH and it’s integration into the nation’s public health programmes, to the need to strengthen our public health delivery, CII’s India Healthcare Week is envisaged as a unique health platform converging multiple stake holders in the health eco system to deliberate and discuss the future of health.CII’s India Healthcare Week 2020 is also expected to host experts from the US, the UK, Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and many other countries coming together in this digital thought leadership and exhibition business platform to discuss health, technology, ayurveda and how these systems can work together to deliver low cost care to India and to the world.Besides Dr Vardhan and Dr Guleria, policymakers and healthcare leaders scheduled to address CII’s India Healthcare Week include the following:Shri Piyush Goyal, Union Minister for Commerce & Industry and RailwaysShri D V Sadananda Gowda, Union Minister for Chemicals & FertilizersDr Renu Swarup.

Family Groove Company Brings The Holiday Heat To Chicago

first_imgHoliday shows have been a tradition since 2002 for the esteemed groove informed jazz rock pioneers Family Groove Company, and this season was no different. It’s always a Chicago family affair when FGC plays the holidays and the vibe was more alive than ever this past Saturday, December, 26th as the show was brought out to the suburbs at Durty Nellie’s, a place that has seen its fare share of fame and is Ted Nugent’s favorite place to play.The group consists of Janis Wallin on bass, Adam Lewis on guitar, Jordan Wilkow on organ/vocals, and “Sweet Pete” Koopmans on drums. Koopmans was given the nickname of “Sweet Pete” by Victor Wooten after jamming together at Summer Camp Music Festival.Miles Over Mountains kicked off the night in the new grass fashion that live music fans have grown to love over the years. A four-piece act consisting of guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass MoM provides the listener with a paradoxical calming, yet exciting experience. The band somehow has the power to ease one’s worries while also forcing the crowd into a frenzy of dance. Their performance was highlighted by a cover of The Who’s classic “Baba O’Riley”.Succeeding MoM was Chicago Funk Mafia. These guys seriously force the crowd to dance. Heavy hitting guitar solos accompanied by booming bass lines, keys, saxophone, trombone, and soulful vocals allow CFM to produce powerful funk. CFM was also quite hilarious as they have song titled “I’m in Love with a Wookie,” which is essentially comedy funk. Certainly one of the highlights of the set was their cover of Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”. By the time Family Groove Company hit the stage, old friends had found each other and magic was in the air. It felt like one big family reunion for all the fans. Many fans moved away from Chicago for various reasons and come back home for the holidays, so the joy was abounding.FGC takes the raw jazz sound that artists like John Scofield produce and turn into a groovy dance party. Nellie’s was packed to the gills and it seemed as if the roof was going to blow off the place as the fans anxiously awaited for the sound. The company laid it on the line with some historic covers. The first was Paul Simon’s “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard” which sent the crowd into an extreme state of bliss due to Wilkow’s beautiful vocals.“Julio” was followed by a cover of Jaco Pastorius’ “The Chicken,” in which FGC was joined by Maurice and Marty from CFM. The Groove Co. also played their near reggae version of “Last Dance With Mary Jane.” They played this song in one of the coolest manners in which it has ever been played.These Family Groove Company Chicago holiday shows have been a family affair since ’02. It is a tradition long running with no sign of stopping. If you are ever worried about a decision just ask yourself “What Would Janis Do?” You’ll know the right answer.Setlist: Family Groove Company at Durty Nellie’s, Palatine, IL – 12/26/15One Set: The World Is Watching, The Unlimited Space Around Us, Negresco, Atlas, Falling Off the Fence, We Could > Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard, The Chicken*, Professionals Here, Mary Jane’s Last Dance, Well In HandEncore: When I Come Around*with Maurice Cade (trombone) and Marty Gierczyk (sax) from Chicago Funk MafiaWords by Andrew Preissing.
